Formative and otherwise. Teachers needs to focus on what students know, not on what they don’t know. We will look at what are the best practices that allow teachers to focus on student understanding and provide information and feedback to students so that deeper learning happens.
A one day professional learning event for coaches, curriculum specialists, math department chairs, or other teacher support personnel. All leaders who are working with teachers using CPM or other student centered math programs at the secondary level are welcome. An online community will be created for those who wish to have ongoing conversations. The day will be led by the National Coaching Coordinator for CPM. Topics will include:
Teacher and student roles What should they look like?
Building your coaching toolbox. What might coaching sessions with a math teacher look like?
Supporting collaborative teacher teams and in turn collaborative student teams
Simplify the process for teachers...helping teachers make connections
Working with all stakeholders – adminstrators, parents, and community
Teachers report challenges in implementing the strategies that make students college and career ready in the 21st century. How do you keep students engaged on interesting math problems? How do you make sure students are discussing rich, mathematical concepts and ideas? How do you shift the teaching focus from covering topics to deepening students’ understanding of the mathematics in each course? In this workshop, teachers will experience the excitement of engaging mathematical lessons while discussing the mathematics with colleagues. Participants will learn how to adjust lessons to promote mathematical discourse while also experiencing strategies they can use to facilitate discussions as students grapple with engaging problems.
This Statistics workshop is designed for those teachers wanting to gain confidence with statistics material that is typically covered in an Algebra 2, Integrated 3 or first semester of a 4th year Statistics course. The material that is going to be covered is:

Two-Variable Quantitative Data (Correlation and Regression)
Multivariable Categorical Data (Probability: tables, trees, Venn diagrams)
Studies and Experiments (Cause Effect, Controlling Variability, Confounding and Bias)
Continuous Probability Density Curves (Normal Distributions)
